Hi Supermoms,

Ganesh Chaturthi is round the corner. 'Ganesh' or 'Ganesha', the elephant faced God is considered as 'Vigna Harna', the one who removes obstacles. 

"The Ganesh Chaturthi festival is celebrated grandly in many States of India. Ganesh Chaturthi (also known as Vināyaka Chaturthi, Gaṇēśa Chaturthī or Vināyaka Cavithi) is the Hindu Festival celebrated in honour of the elephant-headed god. This is a very auspicious day celebrated to pray to the god so that every new activity that is started is successfully completed without any obstacles (Vighna = Obstacle).
Chaturthi (Hindi चतुर्थी) means "fourth day" or "fourth state". Celebrations are traditionally held on the fourth day of the first fortnight  in the month of Bhadraapatra . Badrapad corresponds to Virgo (simha/avani-tamil) in solar calendar. The festival generally lasts ten days, ending on the fourteenth day of the fortnight. 
The festival is celebrated by families at home, by people at their places of work and in public. The public celebration involves installing clay images of Ganesha in public pandals (temporary shrines) and group worship. At home, an appropriately-sized clay image is installed and worshipped with family and friends. At the end of the festival, the idols are immersed in a large body of water such as the sea, river or a lake. The clay idols disintegrate over time in the water" - Wikipedia.
